Histiocytoma Like growth on my dog


Recommended Posts

Hey I’m trying to find someone that knows what this bump is I found on my dog :(
I originally thought it was like a wart and then it popped and bleed with I thought it was getting better but now I don’t know he’s only like 2 years old and this started off as a little bump and got bigger on his ear . He is still energetic and playful and his eating habits are the same so I’m just looking for someone’s opinion?

Please take your dog to the Vet!

Nobody can make a diagnosis from photos.....

Agree.  Better to know it's a histiocytoma rather than similar looking but much more serious alternatives.

Completely sounds like a histiocytoma lesion but, you really need your vet to do some fine needle aspirates (fna) for a cytology.  Those tumors typically yield cells via fna’s really well and often your vet can run the cytology in the clinic during your exam time.  All the best!
